Spinach and Feta Macaroni and Cheese

Spinach and Feta Macaroni and Cheese


5 cups fresh spinach
1 lemon, juiced
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup flour
3 1/2 cups milk
2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 cups cheddar, shredded
3/4 cup feta cheese crumbles
1 pound macaroni-style pasta or cut spaghetti, cooked to al dente


Toss lemon juice and spinach. Heat in microwave or over stove in a small saucepan just until it starts to wilt. Set aside. Over medium heat, melt butter in a large saucepan. Whisk in flour and continue cooking for 3 minutes until lightly browned. Slowly whisk in milk and add in salt and oregano. Begin adding cheddar in small amounts, stirring until melted between each addition. When all the cheese is melted stir in the feta. Mix in cooked macaroni and spinach. Serve immediately sprinkled with extra feta if desired.
Makes 10-12 servings.
